Line Current Commutated (LCC) HVDC systems consists of uncertain plants. These uncertainties are result of changes/disturbances in the ac networks or in the LCC HVDC system itself. Further uncertainties can be introduced due to simplified system modelling techniques. Quantitative Feedback Theory is a frequency-domain technique that utilises the Nichols chart to achieve a robust design over a specified region of uncertainty. The Quantitative Feedback Theory design philosophy was applied to design the LCC HVDC control system parameters. The stable start-up and step responses of the LCC HVDC system, for varying ac system conditions, conclusively validate the Quantitative Feedback Theory design method of the LCC HVDC control system parameters.
